    Hello! What are my options for buying photos taken in the photo studio attached to Princess Fairytale Hall? Last time we had MemoryMaker but didn't like it. These princess pics were the only ones we would want this time. Are they included with Genie+?

    Hey there, Janet!

    Thanks for coming back to us with another great question. I'm happy to assist!

    Whether I'm on a solo trip, visiting with adult gal pals, or enjoying the parks with my husband and kids I always make time to chat with my favorite character pals. My daughter and I visited Rapunzel and Princess Tiana at Princess Fairytale Hall last year and had so much fun gabbing and gossiping about sparkly dresses, frying pans and desserts, of course. In the past, a Disney PhotoPass photographer was available at these locations to snap portraits, but the experience has been updated. Now, just like when visiting Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theatre your photo will be captured without a physical photographer, but with just the same amount of pixie dust guests have come to know and love.

    I took a few cell phone snaps while my daughter traded fashion tips with Rapunzel and Tiana, but a professional camera was also hard at work snapping some adorable photos. I jumped in for a few shots and thought they turned out great! In fact, the lighting on the photos that appeared in my Memory Maker downloads was better than what I captured on my cell phone. You are welcome to ask the Character attendants on site to capture a few family photos with your phone, but this is always done at their discretion.

    Digital downloads of certain attraction photos are included with the purchase of Disney Genie+ Service, but unfortunately, character photos are not part of this offering. If you're hoping to download and share your priceless Princess photo memories after your trip, you'll need to purchase Memory Maker to access them. I usually recommend purchasing Memory Maker (Advance Purchase) as you'll save a bit off the purchase price when bought at least 3 days prior to your visit. However, you can also wait to review the photos captured first before deciding to complete your purchase. You'll find your watermarked photos in your My Disney Experience Mobile App by navigating to the feature menu (≡) and then "Photos." Click on a photo you like to review purchase options available within the app at that time. Once purchased, the watermarks will be removed.

    You might fall in love with every photo taken during your trip and opt to download the whole collection, or you might decide to purchase only the photos taken on a single day. Memory Maker One Day would be the perfect option if you only want to download your Princess meet and greet photos, and plan to visit them at Princess Fairytale Hall on one day. 

    I hope this helped, Janet. If we can answer any other planning questions please come back and let us know.

    Magic and memories,
